Re: 2010 East Hebei trek
After the Old Dragon Head, the Great Wall goes up to the mountains in Jiaoshan, which is now also a scenic spot. However, after walking to the top of Jiaoshan, it would be more difficult, but more beautiful sceneries there. Also the Dongjiakou Great Wall in the north of Qinhuangdao is really beautiful, especially in autumn. I have been to these places with tourists when I worked as a tour guide. In Shanhaiguan, Jiumenkou, and Dongjiakou areas, it is very easy to find a hotel or restaurant. In the countryside, there are local farmers who provide accommodations and food, what's more, it is not expensive.
